Our First Video: Slap Bet!

Today is a historic day, friends. Well, not really. Unless there's a random obscure holiday I'm overlooking. In which case, I will prepare myself for the flood of hate mail from every person I have just wronged on this most sacred of days...

...And a quick Wikipedia search later, I have learned that today is Zanzibar Revolution Day in Tanzania, commemorating the overthrow of the Sultan of Zanzibar in 1964 by local African revolutionaries and the end of 200 years of Arab dominance in Zanzibar. Zanzibarians, you have my humblest apologies...

With that out of the way, we have uploaded our very first video to the YouTube channel! Squee! Here's the scoop: (Yes, I just said scoop like an old-fashioned reporter)

"Jimmy, kids everywhere will always remember me as Perry White and Gordon Bombay's mean old coach. You, on the other hand, will fade into obscurity faster than the cast of Seinfeld."
If you've listened to this week's Getting Off Topic episode (if not, get on it slacker!), you will recall Todd and Lloyd's shenanigans in high-stakes gambling. There were two wagers to be precise, one of which has come to glorious fruition: The Slap Bet.

This past Monday, the world of sportsing saw the Notre Dame Fighting Irish suffer defeat at the hands of the University of Alabama's Crimson Tide. No, I'm not talking about Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington yelling at each other on a submarine... but yes, that's exactly where my mind went too. We're talking the football here! College football! And with Alabama's 42-14 win over Notre Dame, Todd was forced to pay up in the form of taking five across the eyes. Shown here:

Granted, the slapping wasn't quite as epic as it was built up to be. Whether through a decision of mercy or by sheer incidental sissiness, Lloyd delivered nothing more than a gentlemanly blow, as though simply saying, "Good show, old chap. Another round?" (Although, the girly giggling doesn't help the gentlemanly angle) I wouldn't give his performance a terribly scathing review. I mean, come on, he didn't make the Spider-Man musical. I'd just sum it up with an equally gentlemanly golf clap.

Personally, I would've worn a gauntlet...

Or hired Tyrion Lannister...

Man, that never gets old.
